Roasted Cauliflower with Fresh Turmeric
  • 1 whole cauliflower
  • 5cm piece (2 inch) of fresh turmeric, peeled and sliced thinly about 2mm thick (or ½ tsp powdered turmeric)
  • 1-2 tbsp of organic ghee (you can also use coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil or butter works well)
  • a pinch of natural sea salt and black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven with the top element on at 180 degrees celcius
  2. Wash and pat dry the cauliflower, then slice the cauliflower about 1cm thick (you can cut the florets off individually and slice the stem up if you prefer but I like how you get a nice tree like piece of cauliflower when you slice it)
  3. Place in a large bowl
  4. Add the peeled and sliced turmeric
  5. Add the ghee or your fat of choice and mix until combined
  6. Line a baking tray with baking paper and place the cauliflower in one layer
  7. Place on top rack for 12-15mins or until golden, then flip the cauliflower over and bake for another 12-15mins or until golden and remove from the oven
  8. Lightly sprinkle with some sea salt and serve
  9. Check the oven occasionally as the cooking time may vary and you want to check it doesn't burn too quick as you are using the top tray
